Do you not? I challenge you to reconsider this thought. Yes, life can be busy and fast and exhausting, but hidden within the constant shuffle are these little moments of stillness.
I write a lot of my letters during my lunch break. It’s a nice way to allow my mind to temporarily disconnect from work and nourish itself with something new. I can relax over lunch when I’m writing a letter. It gives me a little time to contemplate what I’d really like to convey to my recipient — and to the world.
Postcards are another great way to overcome your “I don’t have the time” obstacle. They are a defined space, limited to just a few words. It’s not only something that can be done quickly, but it is also fun going through the process of saying a lot through saying very little. And then, once sent, they’re like a splash of color traveling through a sea of white envelopes.
So, think you still don’t have time to write any lovely handwritten notes?
My challenge to you today: find that 5-7 minutes that is hidden in between your hustle, and scribble one little note. Put it in the post, and make someone’s day.
